No special tools are required in order to replace your belt. Your vehicle is equipped with a serpentine belt system which means that it uses one big belt to drive all of the accessories. With that being said, all you have to do is place the closed end of a wrench (not sure exactly what size) over the bolt on the front of the tensioner pulley and use it as a lever to push the tensioner away from the belt. once the tension is relieved continue to hold the wrench in place and use your free hand to pull the belt away from the tensioner pulley. After the belt is clear of the pulley slowly let off on the wrench and remove the belt from the remaining pullies. Reverse the process to reinstall the new belt.

SPECIAL TOOLS NEEDED TO INSTALL A NEW REAR WHEEL BEARING ON A 2006 CHEVY IMPALA LTZ WITH ABS ?


none really, metric wrenches or sockets, a breaker bar, w jack and jack stands, flat blade screw driver, and a pair of needle nose pliers, to remove the drum holder to get at the wheel bearing assembly.
remove tire then locking washers, remove rotor, using breaker bar, loosen bolt then remove the abs pick up, it is a 10 mm socket, put out of the way, and then remove the bolts, you might have to use a hammer to get wheel bearing to come free from housing.

WHAT IF ANY SPECIAL TOOLS ARE NEEDED TO REPLACE A REAR WHEEL BEARING ?


No.
The most you'll need is a big hammer or a air hammer to loosen the bearing from the spindle but just like changing a front bearing

Replacing air cond. belt on 1999silverado z71


You should have one belt that drives all of the accessories.
There should be an idler pulley tensioner that keeps the belt tight.
You take a 1/2 inch breaker bar or belt tool to move the tensioner off and on the belt.

Hi, noticed a post of yours rear cambelt replacement on an a4 1.9 tdi ajm year 2000. Would be very grateful for any instructions. The car is stripped down ready for cambelt removing. Stuck on lining up...


Hi, I have pasted instructions below from autozone.com. The instructions call for the use of special tools. You can improvise with alternate tools, but please make sure your timing is right before closing the cover. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

1.9L Diesel Engine
Some special tools are required to perform this procedure properly. A flat bar, VW tool 2065A is used to secure the camshaft in position. A pin, VW tool 2064 is used to fix the pump position while the timing belt is removed. The camshaft and pump work against spring pressure and will move out of position when the timing belt is removed. It is not difficult to find substitutes but do not remove the timing belt without these tools.

WARNING Do not turn the engine or camshaft with the timing belt removed. The pistons will contact the valves and cause internal engine damage.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and remove the accessory drive belts, crankshaft pulley and the timing belt cover(s). Remove the camshaft cover and rubber plug at the back end of the camshaft.
  2. Temporarily reinstall the crankshaft pulley bolt and turn the crankshaft to Top Dead Center (TDC) of No. 1 piston. The mark on the camshaft sprocket should be aligned with the mark on the inner timing belt cover or the edge of the cylinder head.
  3. With the engine at TDC, insert the bar into the slot at the back of the camshaft. The bar rests on the cylinder head to will hold the camshaft in position.
  4. Insert the pin into the injection pump drive sprocket to hold the pump in position.
  5. Loosen the locknut on the tensioner pulley and turn the tensioner counterclockwise to relieve the tension on the timing belt. Slide the timing belt from the sprockets.

To install:
  1. Install the new timing belt and adjust the tension so the belt can be twisted 45 degrees at the halfway point between the camshaft and pump sprockets. Tighten the tensioner nut to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
  2. Remove the holding tools.
  3. Turn the engine 2 full revolutions to return to TDC for the No. 1 cylinder. Recheck belt tension and timing mark alignment, readjust as required.
  4. Install the belt cover and accessory drive belts.
    NOTE If the belt is too tight, there will be a growling noise that rises and falls with engine speed.

Hi, I am trying to change out my AC compressor belt on my 2004 545i and can't see how to release the tension on it. Do you need to actually pull the clutch off the AC compressor or is there a special...


You should have a serpentine belt(1 belt that drives all of your accessories) on your BMW. Look for a pulley that is attached to the block(none of the accessories), this will be your tensioner, they come off either one of two ways: one is a a hole that you slide a 1/2in drive ratchet into then pull to loosen, the other will have a bolt in the middle of it, find the correct size socket and again pull(this should move the whole pulley not break the bolt loose), you then pull the belt off and replace by running it around all the accessories and putting it on the tensioner last.

Can you tell me how i change my supertintine belt on my gmc envoy and do i need a special tool?


No special tools are required to change the serpentine belt on your Envoy. You just need to lift the belt tensioner from the belt. All that is required is a 1/2" breaker bar and the corrent socket to fit on the tensioner.

How can i replace the serpentine belt on 2001


it shouldnt be a bolt it should be a tensioner. i dont think you should be taking bolts off. find the tensioner it will wither be like a 15 mm bolt that is used to move the tesioner or a 3/4th inch breaker bar slot/ratchet slot. you may also want to see at autozone or napa ect if there is some special tool you need for that tensioner.

This procedure involves correcting the tension on the power steering accessory and A/C compressor drive belt.

1. Loosen the power steering pump locking bolts A and B and pivot bolt C(Illustration 1 and 2 ) to allow adjustment of belt tension.
2. Using a 1/2" breaker bar, adjust belt tension by applying torque to the square hole "D" on the power steering pivot bracket. Adjust the tension as follows:

Belt tension with no belt replacement: A. Using the Belt Tension Gauge Special Tool Kit C-4162, adjust the belt tension to 100 lb.
B. Tighten in order, first tighten the locking bolt A to 27 Nm (20 ft. Ibs) then, bolt B to27Nm (20 ft. Ibs). Finally tighten the pivot bolt C to 54 Nm (40 ft. Ibs).
Belt tension with belt replacement:
A. Using the Belt Tension Gauge Special Tool Kit C-4162, adjust the belt tension to 135 lb.
B. Tighten in order, first tighten the locking bolt A to 27 Nm (20 ft. Ibs) then, bolt B to 27Nm (20 ft. Ibs). Finally tighten the pivot bolt C to 54 Nm (40 ft. Ibs).
C. Start the engine and allow the vehicle to idle for 15 minutes to allow the belt to seat.
D. Repeat the belt tensioning procedure, set belt tension to 135 lb.
